I wanted to tell you guys about how AMAZING! monday night was. This whole week has been like that. You know when you’re praying for something and then it happens and you’re mindblow? And then something else happens that related to what youwere praying for, and you’re even more mind blow then before? … And then something else happens, that relates to that whole topic and the mindblown-ness continues? Yeah my week has been like that. For a while, after my 21 days something happened in the midst of it. Where I was feeling down and slightly disconnected from God, although I knew he was there the whole time. So I was praying continuously! “God give me more passion”, I want to want to pursue you and I want to want to love you, like a bridegroom not because I have to or need to because I genuinely want to. So check this out, last Thursday (September 19th) Iwent to an event called the Reset Movement (heres the link if you want to check out the website and see if they’re coming to your town) and I almost didn’t go because every Thursday at 6:30pm I have the Conquerors College Group at my church. But I told myself, I am only going to be on this earth once, before it becomes new, I’m going to this. I had signed up and donated and forgot about it until the Tuesday of that week when I was organizing my agenda. I pulled strings and went to the event. Had an AMAZING time! and the icing on top of the cake I met some incredible worship leaders that I never thought I would meet… EVER. It was all completely unexpected. That definitely reset me, not because of the people I met, but just because God cares. Also, at this event they talked about Jesus, It reminded me of the importance of being in a relationship with him, and how much He and He alone satisfies. I felt like I signed back up for everything that I had said yes to in the past. Then Friday morning when I woke up, I felt overwhelming filled, a feeling I hadn’t felt in a while. Sunday morning at church, we had a guest speaker speak, one of our elders named Clay Graham. He talked about what a christian lifestyle looks like, which reminded me of selfless love. Then the icing on top of the icing was last night at bible study. I had been praying for Grace City UNLV for a while now because UNLV is such ahard battle ground, although the battle was fought and won on the cross. We had someone different speak and honestly he talked about Jesus and what he’s doing in his life. Side note: I find the best messages are the ones not prepared, but when you simply talk and let Holy Spirit do the rest. Then, Holy Spirit came and fell so heavy and thick in the room. It was one of those moments when you’re like “WOW! God, like, Jesus you’re all I want, I don’t care about anything else in this world but you. I could quit school, quit my job, and live in some unknown country and I know I’d be satisfied as with the richest of foods because I’ll be with you”… yeah it was that intense. Graham (not Clay, the guy who spoke on Monday) simply went through Psalm 63, and he didn’t even get through all of the chapter before people started encountering God. Afterwards, I was mind blown, again. I was telling God “I am officially finished putting you in a box, you and you alone satisfy me and will continue to surprise me all the days of my life, like who can comprehend your plans… no one”. On top of everything Monday night was such a conformation of everything that I’ve been praying, like it was being put into motion. God will be glorified at UNLV and I can’t wait to see how he does it!
A psalm of David. When he was in the Desert of Judah.
1 You, God, are my God,earnestly I seek you;I thirst for you,my whole being longs for you,in a dry and parched landwhere there is no water.2 I have seen you in the sanctuaryand beheld your power and your glory.3 Because your love is better than life,my lips will glorify you.4 I will praise you as long as I live,and in your name I will lift up my hands.5 I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods;with singing lips my mouth will praise you.
